I am a junior in UG studying planning. I have been looking at a variety of graduate opportunities because I would like to get my masters soon. However like most people I have debt and would like to keep it limited.
I see that U-Florida offers an online MURP. I was skeptical at first too and I read older threads about it and they were from when the program was in its infancy and people said that the lack of hands on learning would make it a waste.
Here is my question,
People from my school have gotten planning jobs without a masters working in both public and private sector. I have interned at these places and made a good impression. I hope to apply for a job as well as apply to grad schools when i near the end of my UG work.
If I can work in a planning job while getting my online degree from UF, does the lack of hands on work really matter If i am getting real world hands on work all day?
